Well I finally sucked it up and went to ADCO here in Toledo and bought the final pieces to make her ready to fire... I know everyone post up picks on their AR builds but I'm such a proud papa that i just have to brag!!!
I do need some recommendations on some OPTICS and other parts PLEASE post up!!!!!

The list so far:
Rock River Arms A4 forged Upper w/ standard Bolt
Rock River Arms Complete Lower Half /6-Position Tactical CAR Stock

depends on what you wanna do but i'd say drop the pistol grip and the stock and go with something a little better. i like the miad magpul grip. has interchangeable backstraps and front straps. i also love the magpul acs stock. very nice stock.

looks good so far

Good Choice For Optics on my Budget AR?
I like the MagWell grip to a very fine point, it doesnt let me balance the rifle very well but I think I need to get use to it.. That Lucid looks like a real nice setup

I'm defiantly swapping the grip out, just doesn't feel right in my hand. Probably should look at that MagPul asap

I'm fairly certain your sights are on backwards.
See here: MBUS® - Magpul® Back-Up Sights - MBUS® - Magpul® Back-Up Sight – Rear GEN 2
And here: MBUS® - Magpul® Back-Up Sights - MBUS® - Magpul® Back-Up Sight – Front GEN 2
(rightmost pic in the bottom row on both)
You will also want to move your front sight to the last rail slot on the front of the rail and your rear sight to the last rail slot on the receiver (closest to the charging handle). This will allow you to maximize your sight radius.

You are right on the sights (damn it!!) LOL I changed them good looking out!!

The balance is actually nice it really took some getting use to but I can operate the rifle fully now with the magwell grip although I'm still getting the MagPul AFG or the RVG to help more
